Padma Lakshmi admitted that she’s “#accidentprone” Wednesday night when she Tweeted a photo showing her injured elbow and knee.

The picture showed the Top Chef host wearing a brace on her wrist to stabilize her forearm, which has a boxing elbow, according to her rep.

She’s also rocking a knee brace as a result of a “simple and silly fall.”

“I have bruised the tendon on the inside of my left knee,” Lakshmi, 44, tells PEOPLE. “Both should heal by the time I go to Top Chef.”

This isn’t the first time she’s had to deal with injured body parts – in January, Lakshmi’s daughter Krishna Thea, 5, broke her arm and the mom helped out by bedazzling her cast.
